BEER INFO

Brewed by:

Style: American Pale Ale (APA)

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 3.80%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
Formerly Dead Pony Club and Dead Pony

This Californian Pale Ale packs a huge hoppy punch. A 21st century low amplitude, high voltage hop hit. Some people say slow is good. We believe fast is better. Being shot from a Hoppy Howitzer beats the hell out of trotting round a submissive paddock. That's why the internal combustion engine got mounted onto two wheels. Screw down the throttle and listen for that dull banshee howl floating back from those malted mufflers. Drink fast, live fast, sleep late and rip it up down empty streets. This pale ale is chopped, tuned and ready to roll. Fuel up and hold tight, this little thoroughbred kicks like a mule. Perfect for drinking by the bottle, case or even keg.

i liked the color. Unfortunately for me the "massive citrus" smelled more like Durian....

Sorry I cannot "get" this beer. Presentation in a wacky bottle should have alerted me. This is a yuppy beer and where comments are made to keep up with the in crowd rather than as a true reflection. It has a cracking colour, crazy description and a taste far from that expected from a pale Ale albeit the background is USofA rather than UK. Sorry but throughout the drinking of this beer the taste of tinned pinnapple predominated above all in both smell and taste. Yuk.

Great branding also.

Amber color, beautiful off-white foam, quite creamy.
In the smell a citric hppiness, something like nettle, something floral.
In the mouth malt, citric, light body. And again something floral.
Quite short aftertaste, again citric and fruitiness.
Drinkable, but nothing exceptional.

Deep goloden, almost orange colour, short life yellow head. Aroma is full of tropical fruits, some spices.Medium to light palate, a bit watery. Taste of tropical fruits and citrus. Not the best Brewdog, IMO.
